Default US or North American source.

Hi guys.
Beam helis look awesome but where can I find a US source not only for the kits but spares as well?
Looking for another smaller heli I can run on 3S.
Thanks
Pete

Unfortunately there are no US distributors for Beam. The last one was A Main Hobbies but they stopped carrying them due to slow sales.

Thank you.
That's too bad. I really like the looks of them. They seem high quality and very crash resistant. The $27 shipping costs puts a damper on things. Maybe I will shoot them a quick email and see if they would forgo shipping on orders over $150 or something.

Let us know if you find lower cost BEAM shipping to the USA.

We can get cheap crap shipped free from China (and wait 30 days or more) but I'm sick of cheap crap. The BEAM is like fine jewelry.

Hi guys.
I am in the works and hope that it would come to fruition that I could become a strictly web based US distributor for Hatz-Beam products. Can I count on you guys for support? I know I won't make millions but at least we can have some quality equipment close bye with minimal shipping.

I probably already have the largest stock of (not for sale) NIB BEAM E-4 parts in the USA (16+ pounds) so I'm set for 450 but last week I was on the fence about buying a new laptop or a BEAM 4.8. The laptop won out. Most of that decision was based on no USA parts supply. Bring BEAM back to the USA with decent parts stock and I'll bet you'll reignite the BEAM market. Just keep the prices AND SHIPPING reasonable and I'll be in line for a 4.8. Guys still love their E-4 450's but you can buy them for a song because they just don't have any USA parts support. Looks like Align lovers are finally realizing they're an upgrade money pit and the 450 market may be ripe for the higher quality of BEAM once again. Go for it!
